lyrics Middle of the Road

The middle of the road is trying to find me
I'm standing in the middle of life with my plans behind me
Well I got a smile for everyone I meet
As long as you don't try dragging my bay
Or dropping the bomb on my street
Now come on baby get in the road
Oh come on now in the middle of the road yeah
In the middle of the road you see the darndest things
Like fat guys driving 'round in jeeps through the city
Wearing big diamond rings and silk suits
Past corrugated tin shacks full up with kids
Oh man I don't mean a hampstead nursery
When you own a big chunk of the bloody third world
The babies just come with the scenery
Oh come on baby mmm get in the road
Oh come on now in the middle of the road yeah
Seven eight
The middle of the road is no private cul-de-sac
I can't get from the cab to the curb
Without some little jerk on my back
Don't harass me can't you tell
I'm going home I'm tired as hell
I'm not the cat I used to be
I got a kid I'm thirty-three baby
Get in the road come on now
In the middle of the road yeah brrrr oh
